A Benefit show for OPAL
Jessica Dennison + Jones is the music of two Portland-based Jessicas, friends and collaborators for over a decade. Their self-titled, debut album has been referred to as “gently charming indie-pop with traces of classic pop and country” (Stereogum) and “alt-country-tinged dream pop” (The Portland Mercury). Jessica Dennison + Jones is a cross pollination of Dennison’s reflective, naturalistic lyrics and the winding lead guitar melodies of Jessica Jones, who is inspired by classic influences including guitarists like Rosetta Tharpe, Steve Cropper, and Mother Maybelle Carter. They are often accompanied by drummer Randy Bemrose (Radiation City), who helped to produce and record the record, and Joe Jiang (The Slants).
